Blogger Kareem Amer finally released

He was finally set free on the evening of 15 November, 10 days after completing a four-year jail sentence, and is now reunited with his family. He has decided for the time being to make no statement.The blogger was again subjected to physical mistreatment at the headquarters of the internal security department in Alexandria during the 10 days he was held illegally after 5 November, the date he should have been released.“We are deeply relieved and happy to know that Kareem’s nightmare is over and he is free at last,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Nothing will be able to erase his four years of suffering as a result of a totally unjustified conviction, but at least he will no longer be the scapegoat of Egyptian government anger at criticism expressed by bloggers. We will closely monitor the behaviour of the authorities towards Kareem in the coming months and we will be ready to report any attempt to intimidate him.”The press freedom organisation added: “We would like to thank all those who fought for his release, including his fellow Egyptian bloggers, especially those linked to the Free Kareem Coalition, Internet users the world over, human rights groups and politicians. His lawyer, Rawda Ahmed, and Gamal Eid of the Arabic Network for Human Rights Information deserve special recognition for their unflagging commitment to his cause despite the extremely difficult conditions in which they had to defend him.”Reached by telephone today, Gamal Eid told Reporters Without Borders he was delighted by Kareem Amer’s release but added that Kareem “should never have spent four years in prison just for exercising his right to free speech.”Arrested on 6 November 2006 for criticising the government’s religious and authoritarian excesses in his blog (www.karam903.blogspot.com), Kareem Amer was sentenced on 22 February 2007 to three years in prison on a charge of inciting hatred of Islam and another year in prison on a charge of insulting the president. His blog entries also criticised the Sunni University of Al-Azhar, where he had studied law, and discrimination against women. He was previously arrested for similar reasons on 2005.Kareem Amer was subjected to appalling conditions in detention. In his letters he described being put in solitary confinement for 10 days and “physical torture that was covered up by the prison doctor, who altered my medical file.” His request for a new trial was rejected in 2009. His request for early release, for which he qualified a year ago on completing three quarters of his jail term, was also rejected.Countless protests were organised by the Free Kareem Coalition (http://www.freekareem.org/) and others during the past four years to press for his release. Reporters Without Borders awarded him its “Cyber-Freedom” prize in December 2007. That year, Reporters Without Borders demonstrated outside the Egyptian embassy in Paris and the Egyptian stand at the world tourism trade fair in Paris. Reporters Without Borders staged another demonstration in front of the Louvre Pyramid in Paris last year to draw the attention of the media and public to his plight.His release gives the government an opportunity to begin anew its relationship with Egypt’s netizen community. It could start by putting an end to the constant harassment of bloggers, whether in the form of brief arrests or abusive court prosecutions.Justice also needs to be rendered in the case of Mohammed Khaled Said, a young man who was beaten to death outside an Alexandria Internet café on 6 June after posting a video showing police officers sharing the proceeds from a drug deal.

Ahmedabad Civil Hospital : Too Early To Give Final Certificate; Be Ready For Surprise Visits, Says Gujarat HC

The Government said in the application that the scathing observations of the Court “has shaken the confidence of a common man in the Civil Hospital, and in such circumstances, he would be very reluctant to come to the Civil Hospital for treatment if he is tested COVID­19 positive”.Claiming that the steps have been taken to improve the conditions in the hospital, the Government urged the Court to “make few suitable observation so as to inspire confidence in the mind of a common man”.In response, the Court said “if what has been stated by the State Gujarat in this Civil Application is true and a reality, then we appreciate the same. Prima facie, it appears from the materials which has been placed on record that due and proper care is being taken for the treatment of the COVID­19 patients”.The Court however added that the matter does not end there and said:”It is too early for this Court to give any final certificate to the State Government as regards the Civil Hospital at Ahmedabad. There are many problems which the State Government needs to look into closely and try to resolve the same at the earliest in the larger interest of the people of Gujarat, more particularly, the city of Ahmedabad”.The objections raised by the State Government against the Court taking cognizance of an anonymous letter sent by a resident doctor at the Hospital were also dismissed.”No resident doctor will muster the courage of coming forward disclosing his identity for the purpose of redressing such grievances. In such circumstances, the resident doctors are compelled to address anonymous letters pointing out the difficulties they are facing as on date in the Civil Hospital”, the bench observed.”We expected the State Government to look into the contents of the letter very closely so as to take appropriate steps at the earliest, but it seems that the State Government has dismissed it as rubbish”, the Court lamented. The Court directed that appropriate inquiry should be undertaken with respect to the contents of the anonymous letter, which highlighted issues of lack of adequate PPEs and N95 masks for doctors, inadequacy of tests conducted on health workers, breach of social distancing protocols in hospitals, lack of isolation facilities etc.The Court said that an independent committee should probe the complaints raised in the anonymous letter.”If the doctors and nursing staff are not happy with their working conditions, then it will take a heavy toll on their performance and consequently, on the COVID­19 patients”, the Court observed.Before disposing of the application, the Court sounded a word of caution saying that the Hospital authorities should be ready for a surprise inspection by the judges any time.”We sound a note of caution. The Superintendent of the Civil Hospital and other authorities of the Health Department of Gujarat shall keep themselves ready to find our presence one fine morning on a given day in the Civil Hospital. This would put an end to all the controversies with regard to the functioning of the Civil Hospital at Ahmedabad”.The Court also said that it was glad to know that the Health Minister of the State is active and taking keen interest in the administration and functioning of the Civil Hospital.  “It is expected of the Health Minister to discharge his responsibilities for the citizens of the State of Gujarat in the best possible manner. The State of Gujarat should not hesitate to take stern action against any erring officials found to be negligent or careless in discharge of his duties. This is the only way the State Government will be able to repose confidence in the mind of a common man. The State Government boasts that the Civil Hospital at Ahmedabad is the biggest hospital in Asia, but, it should now strive very very hard to make the same as one of the best hospitals in Asia”, the Court added.Civil hospital as good as a dungeonOn May 22, the Court had expressed alarm over the high morbidity rate of COVID-19 patients in Ahmedabad Civil Hospital.The Court said that its conditions were “pathetic” and were “as good a dugeon”.The Court asked if the Gujarat Government was aware that the lack of adequate number of ventilators was the cause of high mortality of patients there.”Is the State Government aware of the hard fact that the patients at the Civil Hospital are dying because of lack of adequate number of ventilators? How does the State Government propose to tackle this problem of ventilators?”, the bench asked.The Civil Hospital contributed to highest death in most of the week during the last eight weeks, the Court noted. “It is very distressing to note that most of the patients in the Civil Hospital are dying after four days or more of the treatment. This indicates complete lack of critical care”, the Court had said. “We are very sorry to state that the Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad, as on date, appears to be in an extremely bad shape. Ordinarily, the citizens hailing from a poor strata of society are being treated at the Civil Hospital. This does not mean that human life is not to be protected. Human life is extremely precious and it should not be allowed to be lost at a place like the Civil Hospital at Ahmedabad”, the Court had observed.Click here to download OrderRead Order  Next Storylast_img read more

Right To Marry A Person Of Choice Irrespective Of Caste Or Religion A Fundamental Right : Karnataka High Court

A division bench of Justices S Sujata and Sachin Shankar Magadum, while disposing of a habeas corpus petition filed by one Wajeed Khan seeking the release of his lover Ramya from confinement, said : “It is well settled that a right of any major individual to marry the person of his/her choice is a fundamental right enshrined in the Constitution of India and the said liberty relating to the personal relationships of two individuals cannot be encroached by anybody irrespective of caste or religion.” The decision assumes relevance in the backdrop of talks by Karnataka Government to bring a law against ‘love jihad’ – a conspiracy theory used to discredit marriages between Muslim men and Hindu women as conspiracy to cause conversion -following the footsteps of Uttar Pradesh.UP Ordinance Criminalizing Religious Conversion By Marriage Is An Assault On Personal LibertyOn being produced before the court by the police, Ramya submitted that she is staying at Mahila Dakshatha Samithi, Vidyaranyapura, at present, pursuant to the complaint lodged by her to the Janodaya Santwana Kendra, alleging infringement of her right to liberty caused by her parents relating to her marriage with the petitioner. Further, she submitted that she has decided to marry the petitioner who is a colleague. The mother of the petitioner has no objections for the marriage of her son with her. However, her parents are not giving consent to the said marriage. The bench said “The scope of habeas corpus being limited to produce the person and she being produced before the Court, recording her submission as aforesaid, we dispose of the writ petition setting her at liberty.” It added Ramya being a software engineer is capable of taking a decision regarding her life. The court directed Mahila Dakshata Samithi directed to release her forthwith.The Allahabad High Court recently pronounced a significant verdict stating that “Right to live with a person of his/her choice irrespective of religion professed by them, is intrinsic to right to life and personal liberty.”The division bench of the High Court declared as bad in law two single-bench precedents which had held that conversion just for the sake of marriage was invalid. The division bench said that the single bench decisions failed to deal with the “the issue of life and liberty of two matured individuals in choosing a partner or their right to freedom of choice as to with whom they would like to live”. “…neither any individual nor a family nor even the state can have an objection to the relationship of two major individuals who out of their own free will are living together”, the High Court stated.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

“UP Govt. Went Complacent Due To Weakening Of COVID Virus Impact By End Of 2020, Posterity Will Not Forgive Us If We Let People Die”: Allahabad High Court

first_imgNews Updates”UP Govt. Went Complacent Due To Weakening Of COVID Virus Impact By End Of 2020, Posterity Will Not Forgive Us If We Let People Die”: Allahabad High Court Akshita Saxena27 April 2021 9:04 AMShare This – x”Those who are resource full will survive and rest as histories of past pandemics tell us may die for want of proper healthcare””It is now an open secret that government had gone complacent due to weakening of virus impact by the end of 2020 in the state and the government got more involved in other activities including Panchayat elections. Had it been constantly vigilant, it would have prepared itself to face the onslaught of the pandemic in its second wave…Posterity would never forgive us if we remain oblivious to the real public health issues and let the people die for want of adequate health care,” remarked the Allahabad High Court on Tuesday while taking stock of the chaotic situation in the state due to lack of medical and healthcare facilities. A Division Bench comprising of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar asked the Government to shun the attitude of ‘my way or no way’ and to take welcome suggestions from all the quarters. It has issued a slew of directions to the UP Government to ramp up the currently saturated public health infrastructure and has sought for a blue print in that regard by the next date of hearing on May 3. “Today as the threat of the pandemic looms large and public health system is not able to cater the need of the people as per demand, so people have themselves put a lockdown to their normal activities. The roads and streets have gone deserted and commercial activities in major cities of the state of Uttar Pradesh have nearly come to a standstill. City population is in complete grip of Corona virus… People are waiting in queues outside every hospital in search of a bed for survival but only a very few lucky ones are getting chance and even non-Covid patients and those who have become negative and are facing acute respiratory problem due to Covid involvement in lungs, are not getting beds,” the Division Bench noted. It stated that two things are required to be streamlined immediately: A) the management of public health infrastructure; and B) raising or enhancing the infrastructure to at least meet 1% of the city’s population in every district of the state. Accordingly, it has ordered: Proper management of Doctors & medical The High Court has noted that the management of the Doctors, medical and paramedical staff needs urgent attention since they are working day and night i.e. 24 x 7 and are even getting infected. It has ordered: Effort should be to rotate the staff six hourly to give it the required rest. Health workers be engaged on contract basis. Such other staff including data feeders and computer operators should be employed as testing sample and their collections are to be carried out on a very large scale continuously so that a large number of the cities’ population is at least tested for Covid and it gets its result in time. Sustained growth by enhancing existing infrastructure The Court was informed that the Government is coming up with new healthcare facilities. For instance, a 600 beds covid hospital which is under construction at Lucknow with the support of DRDO. The Court observed that while building new structures is a time taking task, optimum use of existing building should be made. It has ordered for: Setting up of makeshift wards upon the open space on the campuses of the hospitals Government and district administration should study viability of setting up more and more Level-1 covid centres with all requisite facilities so that people voluntarily approach there.Patients must be supplied with good quality food and potable water and paper napkins at every meal which should be served at least 4 times a day in all levels of covid hospitals and covid centres.Sanitization of hospitals, its corridors and washrooms must be undertaken at least three times to four times a dayThe hospitals that have been taken over or assigned as Covid health centres must be ensured to be well-equipped with all needed medical devices including BiPAP machine High Flow Cannula Mask and ventilators and that too all should be in sufficient numbers and constant oxygen supply must also be ensured to these hospitals.The number of ambulances must be increased immediately and these ambulances that are requisitioned or purchased must be well equipped with life saving devices. Set up quarantine wards During the hearing, the Court was informed that due to lack of medical infrastructure, such patients who turn Antigen negative, are being forced to leave the hospital even though their SPO2 is 10 below 90. To address this issue, the Court ordered: Mere antigen negative report should not be a ground to throw a patient out of the hospital as such patients can still infect others. Such patients needed to be shifted to non-Covid wards for at least a week and for this government needs to gear up to set up makeshift wards on the campus of the hospitals if there is a space so that there may not be problem of nursing staff and health workers. Availability of oxygen is to be ensured in those wards also as SPO2 level still can be on a lower side. Conduct health bulletins To reduce panic amongst citizens and in order to ensure greater transparency, the High Court has ordered that all major government hospitals in the cities of Lucknow, Prayagraj, Varanasi, Agra, Kanpur Nagar, Gorakhpur and Jhansi should have health bulletin system twice a day, apprising people of health updates of the patients. It has ordered: Hospitals may use large screens to give details of patients and their saturation levels. This will definitely help in reducing the number of visitors every day to the hospitals and chances of spread of further infection. The government is also directed to declare on its district portal of the above cities the occupied and vacant positions of beds in covid wards and ICUs of all government hospitals and covid assigned private hospitals and government is also directed to make wide publication of its district covid portals and sites in news papers and also through public announcement systems.

first_imgiStock(NEW YORK) — A mother and her two young children have been found dead inside their New York City home just hours after the children’s father was picked up by authorities while wandering along a highway, according to the NYPD.Emergency dispatchers received a 911 call detailing an assault in progress at a Staten Island home about 10:30 a.m. Saturday, NYPD Assistant Chief Kenneth Corey said in a statement. When officers arrived, the home was filled with smoke, and the bodies of the 36-year-old mother and her children, ages 3 and 2, were discovered by firefighters after they extinguished the small fire, Corey said.The mother’s body was lying on a bed facedown, ABC New York station WABC-TV reported.Authorities had picked up a 36-year-old man believed to be the children’s father at 7:48 a.m. while he was walking along the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, and transported him to the hospital for evaluation, Corey said.He underwent a psychological evaluation at the hospital, according to WABC-TV.The mother, whose name has not been released by authorities, was an active-duty member of the U.S. Air Force, WABC-TV reported.
